The Okidata B4300 laser printer is designed for the home or small office environment. It is particularly well-suited to a busy small office, and includes optional networking support for easy sharing. Graphics are below average for a laser printer, so consider a different model for complex graphic designs.
The Oki B4300 does not includes built-in networking as a standard feature, but an optional print server upgrade can be added. Additionally, the B4300N comes with ethernet networking built in. This allows it be shared easily across a network of users. The unit can also be connected via parallel or USB.
The 200 mhz processor and 16 MB of RAM (which is expandable to 48 MB) ensures that it does not need to rely on a host computer for processing. Paper capacity is 250 sheets in a single standard tray. An additional 500-sheet tray can be added at any time, for a total of 750 sheets of paper capacity. This allows the unit to grow to meet the changing needs of an office. The unit is fairly compact, measuring 8.5 inches by 14 inches by 15.6 inches (HWD) and weighs only 22 pounds, designed similarly to the LaserJet P2035 toner printer, which is easily moved around when necessary.
Each standard laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,500 pages. Cartridges from the manufacturer tend to be a bit expensive, but third-party resellers sell the printer toner cartridges for lower prices, reducing the cost per page by a considerable amount. Using the unit's toner save mode can also help users get more from each Okidata B4300 toner cartridge.
Print speeds are fast, at up to 19 pages per minute, and first page out time is less than 7 seconds, meaning less waiting for a print job to start. Print quality is excellent, with sharp text and decent graphics quality. For color graphics, look at the LaserJet 2500 toner printer.
Overall, the Okidata B4300 is a reliable and fast printer for a busy small office. Networking options make it easy to share, and expandable paper and memory capacity makes it an excellent choice for the growing office.
